Ottawa-senators-new-jersey
In his first day back on the ice in Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson said his left leg feels fine and won’t hinder his game this season. Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson skated here Monday for the first time since last spring’s playoffs and said he was feeling just fine thanks very much. And so only weeks before NHL training camps begin fans of the team keep their fingers crossed — with good reason. It’s probably fair to say that as Karlsson goes this season so go the Senators. Just six months ago Karlsson’s left Achilles tendon was partially severed in a Feb. 13 game in Pittsburgh when Matt Cooke pinned him against the boards and cut him with his left skate.

Instead of Alfredsson speaking with the media, what I've got for you is Erik Karlsson telling the Canadian Press that he'...

Travis Yost: Grabovski, Maybe?

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- A lot's been made about Ottawa's ~ $50MM internal cap. They seem prepared to take the lid off of that by a touch after RFA Jared Cowen is re-upped, but it's pretty clear to this point that money is very tight right now, and they're not really moving much away from that number. Naturally, expecting any kind of move away...

Jerseygate - Alfie Dons Centurion One Last Time?

Photo from SenatorsExtra.com I guess this is supposed to qualify as news, but Daniel Alfredsson apparently skated today at the Bell Sensplex wearing one of his old Senators-issued practice jerseys. After what can only be described as a tumultuous four weeks from a public relations standpoint, you can understand why today’s event may stick in the craw of fans who can’t...
